texas democrats is that it was smooth sailing for wendy davis and laetitia van depewt who are the solid candidates for governor and lieutenant governor in texas. then there's also the terrible news for texas democrats. in the united states senate race, so in the race where democrats are picking who they're going to have run against john cornyn, that is where we get the texas democratic party nightmare news, the relatively low profile but mainstream democratic front returner for that senate race is this guy, his name is david alameal. he did not lose the democratic primary for the u.s. senate race in texas last night. he also did not win. he has now been forced into a runoff in the electoral equivalent of the bar scene from star wars. he can't just head into the general election and start running against john cornyn in the fall. first, he has to go through another election where it is him against alarusy. they tend to run against democrats but there's nothing about them that has to do with the democratic party. they're more like the westboro baptist church fred phelps people than anyone
